The food is over priced for what you get. I suppose they have to make up for being closed all winter long. Parking is hard to find being right on Ocean Street Docks.

This was the worst place we ate in during our trip around New England. Service was abysmal and was matched by the quality of the food. Some people must be easily pleased if they rate this place.

Very handy for our hotel, Hyannis Harbor. We tried to get into the Black Cat on the opposite side of the road but there was half an hour wait so we came to Spanky's. We were pleased that we did as the food was good, the service was very friendly and efficient.

Nice spot for a quick break, a seafood snack and a beer. We found the food to be very good. Lobster roll, fried clam strips, oysters, fried fish, chowder, were all tasty and nicely prepared. Service was efficient but not really that friendly. Oysters were tiny and very over priced for what was served. They were fresh and tasty though.... More

I had their very good clam chowder, more potatoes than clams, my husband their Fried Clam Platter, lots of huge clams. The couple I tried were a little sandy but tasty. The parking situation at their location is terrible unless you get into their own parking lot, which we were lucky enough to do. The Harbor Tour boards right there... More

On our first day in Hyannis we got an order of clam strips for lunch from their take-out counter at the front of the restaurant to give them a test run. Clam strips were very good so we had dinner in the sit down area of the restaurant on two more occasions during our stay. This place is by the... More

This restaurant was just opposite our hotel, the Cape Code Harbour House Inn. The food was brilliant. I had a bouillabaisse very generous in size as well as seafood. Everything we ate there was very good.
